I don't think it's a problem, I think they just do something different on cylinder# 5 & 6 tubes. I should know soon.

I may not have been clear, I have Sandersons already and I was thinking about getting Vortec Heads. I don't want to have to buy headers again!

Looks like the above information could be erroneous.

Summit called Sanderson and spoke to Brandon who says the headers I ordered will work fine with Vortec heads. Apparently, Sam may be confused, I know I am. :bang:

Just needs the mosfets and regulators. I found it easier to mount all four devices onto the heatsink first, on the prototype.

This should make installing the connector easy.

About an hour to wire the switch and connector, each. After testing, I will insulate the exposed connections.

If you can get those Sandersons to fit without the use of a BFH or the "blue tipped hot wrench", I will sell my Hooker 2135's in a flash.
The "fleet"-
77 Vega Estate wagon- project(someday)will have TPI305/T-5, S-10 spindles/axles
72 Vega HB Drag Car -383/'Glide/9"(9.45@146.19)(6.01@117.28 1/8th)
76 Vega GT- 400/4spd/9" retired from active duty(rusty)
03 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (work truck/parts hauler)
04 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (retired)
06 Haulin' 20ft enclosed car transporter
93 Suburban- 350/4L60(retired)
00 Saturn SW2- wife's car
01 Saturn SC2- younger son's project
00 Saturn SL2- daughter's car
98 Saturn SW2- spare
and 3 more Saturn "parts cars"
Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....

No hammer, no torch - check! :bang:

Making new engine mounts also so I will be able to set the height to whatever works. :idea: Hopefully won't need to modify the air cleaner - again. :cuss:

Thanx 6D9 8)

That decal looks great, but it brings you uncomfortably close to the "purist" category of H-body owner. :wink: Like Bob. :lol:
